I am a pretty busy student, from September to June my life is taken up by school, from August to November and March to May all my free time is taken up by Field Hockey and Crew respectively. But what about that middle stretch? The long winter months? My life is taken over by "show business"! I am the head of my school's costumes crew and from October to March I costume three or four High school shows back to back. That's right, not just my (all girls school) shows, but our brother school's as well!

Now I can see the finish line, I've done three shows and tech week for the final show fast approaches. This last show is one for our brother school, it's Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat, a childhood favorite of mine. I'm having so much fun working on it, I especially enjoyed making the dreamcoat (in two days cough cough)! I wanted it to have a full circle skirt so it could do this trick:
and I wanted it to have chevroned stripes on top kind of like this:
So I made this!
|Ignore me and my wet hair doing homework in the background.|
There are 8 skirt panels, all the stripes meet in chevrons at every (!) seam, it is fully lined in gold lamé and it fits great. Yay I'm so happy with it, it turned out great and the cast and Director love it! Now..... I just have to make all the less fun ensemble stuff.... )-:
Enjoy the kooky fun of Joseph and the Technicolor Dreamcoat!
